traveled to iraq to become suicide bombers. the highest number from any town outside of iraq. >> the city and its surroundings were sympathetic to these groups because they had a common enemy which was kadafi. >> from the onset of the revolution, it was the extremists that provided security. after liberation was announced, there was increasing pressure on kald in yemen and other places. alleged to have been sent here by al qaeda's leader. according to security sources, these militia have a common goal weakening and infiltrating libya's security apparatus. in benghazi there have been more than a dozen assassinations of former military officers. sources tell cnn that many of them were reportedly on a islamist hit list to eliminate qualified individuals that could pose a threat. kernel from the lyan army was recently kidnapped. he doesn't know by whom or exactly why. he got a call from a man who spoke as if he knew him and said he had urgent information to pass on. outside his home, in broad daylight, two masked man forced him into their car. when i got into the car, they put a black hood on
international. i'm suzanne malveaux. here's what's going on right now. the government of iraq wants its own vice president dead. well, now he is on the run. and in syria they called them barrel bombs. they are filled with nails, gasoline, and tnt. one just fell on a kindergartener. also, we begin in europe where a little while ago a girl just woke up after witnessing the unspeakable. it is a murder mystery that stretches from france to britain. a family was found dead in a car in the french alps. the body 6 a cyclist was also discovered meesh. all the victims were shot in the head. twice. but two little girls survived. one was beaten and shot. the other one hid under her dead mother's legs for hours. we are joined from england outside the family's home, and antika, this has a lot of people talking. i mean, it's unbelievable when you think about what took place, what happened with this family. do investigators have any idea of a motive? >> not at this point, and that's the big question. what was the motive? why did this happen? this is why british police are now inside the family home behind me t
9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on t
the same logistical force, the same command and control for two land works, iraq and south korea is no longer needing a land force from you in order to protect it, we could do it with air power, what's the new strategy? that's what's missing in in debate. a strategy and force capability metric, not one based on how many ships and aircraft when each can do so much more than before. >> let's go into the military aspect of it a little more. you talk about the difference between a cold war military and a 21st century military. the tactics are different and the nature of victory is different. are we prepared as a military, are we adjusted to the modern way of fighting, or are we not there dwryet? >> no, we're not there yet. for example, china to where the president has rightly shifted the focus in the western pacific, which is the center of gravity for america not just in tec terms of security but our economic interests. it has 80 submarines today. we have 50. do we want to procure another 30 at $2 billion a pop and try to have each submarine find each other like needles in a haystack
because of iraq and because of guantanamo. they hated us because of the torture -- he used the word and accuses his own country ever torturing. and he is now apologizing and promising to change course. we would no longer be tough. we would be lov show compassion. and we would get out of iraq. he set a deadline for afghanistan. he doesn't support the green revolution in iran. he shows the ayatollahs tremendous respect. he essentially protects them when they are under attack. he gets nowhere on the iran nuclear issue. he is equivocal in the arab spring. he leads from behind in libya. the theory was if we go soft and we are very nice, if we -- if we say [speaking in arabic [enough times, it will be all right. he decided, the theory and therefore the practice is going to be, retreat and withdraw. remember the line he uses? the tide of war is receding. >> sean: exactly. >> that means the tide of american power is receding. and the reason that american interests, schools, embassies, businesses are aflame in the middle-east from tunis to south asia is because things don't happen in a vacuu
that's a large part of it. it's also the ending of the war in iraq, and in effect how the war in afghanistan is no longer front page news the way it should be and the way it was in the past. certainly the main reason why terrorism has receded as a priority is basically because of the success the administration had against al qaeda. we see a threat far different than on 9/11, it's aa far different and weaker threat. most americans while they deal with some of the annoyance of tsa and other security measures put in place since 9/11, i don't think they feel the press of the threat the way they did a number of years ago. >> roger, i imagine there's not one thing you can name, but obviously people wonder. it is the improvement that is we've seen with tsa, some of the other counterterrorism measures in place and even the viewpoint of the cia, the fbi and counterterrorism agencies now working together? i guess the core of my question is, can you say why we have been so fortunate, so blessed, whatever term you choose to describe it for the attack like on 9/11? >> tamron, it's all of t
guard and not just signed up for the national guard, volunteered to deploy to iraq. went to iraq, came back, did another deployment, that one was in kuwait and have continued your political career. you're still a member of the national guard if i'm not mistaken. >> yes. >> my understanding is that experience changed your politics quite a bit. you were a conservative i believe, conservative on social issues certainly, when you were 21, and your deployment changed your politics. i want you to talk about that and then talk a bit more broadly about what you saw from democrats in this convention. >> absolutely. you know, my deployments both to iraq and kuwait absolutely were life-changing in so many ways. specifically with regards to social issues and kind of my politics in general, seeing firsthand the extreme, really the extreme negative effects of what can happen in societies where the government tries to be a so-called moral arbiter for its people and drawing that link from extremeness in the middle east to some of the conversations that we're having here at home, places where our gover
recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was an unexpected thing to fi. historically libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda, and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them, do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there's a sort of umbrella group, according to the libyan -- former libyan jihadist, supporters of sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who were taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, being able to do some attacks on western
you can't send american troops to afghanistan or can't put american troops in iraq. the arab street, there will be anti-american violence. guess what? it hadn't happened until now. why is it, only under barack obama when he is doing everything the radicals want, pulling troops, he has pulled our troops out of iraq and pulled them out of afghanistan. he has announced a pivot to southeast asia but they are burning ef gees of barack obama across the middle east. >> sean: look at these images, juan. they burned our flag all over the world. they are killing people. the president's response to this has spend our money on an advertisement campaign, saying we're not responsible for the movie trailer as we now know as we reported had nothing to do with this? >> wait a second. let me make a couple points. the reason we give money to pakistan. the reason we have a relationship. >> sean: running ads they are running. >> you asked why do we give money to these people that are not friends to us and you saw on terms on the tapes. i want to remind you they are nuclear power and we want influence th
by ahmadinejad. they spent two years in prison after being detained near the iraq/iran border. fattal spoke to cnn celebrating his freedom yesterday. >> i feel way better than a year ago. actually i was out a year ago, one day, so it was damn good. it's been quite a year. it feels like you go away. i'm waiting for mahmoud ahmadinejad to come. hopefully they'll spread the wealth. >> the three hikers are working on a tell-all book that is scheduled to be released next year. >>> an unwanted japanese import, danger off the coast of hawaii as tsunami deblow comes floating in. things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development
, they were fighting that war alongside a second war in iraq. two of the longest wars in american history fought at the same time, by a population of troops that makes up less than 1% of the american population. think about that. we have put an incredible burden on a proportionately tiny sliver of our population. and they did not get to those wars on their own. they didn't start those wars. the government sent them to do that work, in our name, right? a grateful nation, and all that. well, now americans coming home from those wars have an unemployment rate that is 35% higher than the national rate of unemployment. everybody's having a hard time in this job market, right? but veterans coming home from these wars have been at war. they have been doing things at their job for their deployment that employers may not understand on a resume. kandahar and baghdad don't exactly easily compare to the other addresses that employers are seeing on people's application for work. so the unemployment rate for vets is significantly higher, 35% higher than it is for the rest of the country. but that disad

. benghazi for years providing a vast majority of the foreign fighters heading into iraq and afghanistan. the fact that it was from 9-11 itself that al-zawahri came out exhorting all of his followers to commemorate the anniversary of 9-11. you look at the fact that they picked this target the consulate in benghazi because it was a soft target. the state department has a responsibility to says the risk they did not do that they should have provided a secure facility. a variety of things. build a new site. do it a year ago you look at the attackers and the way they pattern that attack the pattern of fire was accurate they knew where the safe house was. >> destroy the safe house where the ambassador would have gone. >> they have sources they recruited inside this facility. that's not a difficult thing to do. >> why wouldn't the u.s. secure that area? >> that is part of the problem. that's why i think the administration in a very coordinated aggressive effort says we had no control over this, what were we supposed to do. >> i don't think we should send americans over there in my opinion. app
worked in iraq where you want to rebuild a country. >> or build. >> well, build, actually. you can't rebuild a country that is in the second century right now. >> it's hard to talk about. it's hard for the candidates to talk about. and if anything can be read into the mistake or the complete just disregard for the story, it would be in the fact that this wasn't even mentioned in mitt romney's speech. afghanistan, are troops serving our way forward in terms of foreign policy because it's too hard to talk about. i don't understand how they could forget it. they can't forget a huge sector of what's going on in this country. >> why not? >> they avoided it. you know why? because it's hard. and they don't think people want to hear about it. >> do you know why they avoided it? for the same reason the media has avoided it. >> i agree with that. >> other than the "new york times" and a couple other outlets, the media have avoided it, the american people have avoided it. you bring it up and everybody we've talked to over the past couple of years want us out of there. >> republicans especiall
to the fruit vendor in tunisia who set himself on fire to the decision by george w. bush to attack iraq in the wake of 9/11. go in, overthrow a dictator, turn the country over to the people and presto. well, violence continues in iraq and people die there everyday. egypt's now in the hands of the muslim brotherhood. mubarak's gone. they had elections there. and yesterday violent mobs assaulted the u.s. embassy compound. in libya moammar gadhafi's gone. the u.s. ambassador and three other people are dead because some terrorists in that country didn't like a movie critical of islam. syria's become a slaughter house murdering the civilian population at will. iran continues the march toward nuclear weapons. i don't want to even think what might happen if they get them. and al qaeda is busy reconstitutes itself in pakistan and half a dozen other countries. the song writer who wrote the phrase, wishing won't make it so, spot-on. and anybody who thinks the middle east is suddenly going to transform itself into a peaceful civilization where majority rules, they just haven't been reading the his

. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on youtube in july and recently publicized in the middle east. here's what we're also learning tonight. federal officials say the filmmaker's name is nakoula basseley nakoula. that name is very important and much more and why it matters so much later. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statement denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they have quickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and three
will get a break. >>> peter thank you. a wave of deadly attacks rocking iraq today. >> nearly 400 wounded in one of the most brutal days in the country this yeast. they attacked guns down soldiers at an army post and bombing police recruits waiting in line to apply for jobs. no one is taking direct responsibility for the attacks with the iraq de kogovernment pg al qaeda. it will take them they were forced out of before the troops with bra from that country last year. >>> political turmoil to go along with the center lines. an iraqi court convicting him and his son-in-law of masterminding the killers of a lawyer and government security official. he denies the charges and has been a fugitive in nearby turkey. the politically charged case is fuelling resentment against the government. >>> a christian pastor in iran spending the first full day with his family after being released from prison. he was incarcerated three years ago after refusing to renounce his christian faith. he originally was sentenced to die but the court reduced the charges and let him go for time served. that pastor's stor

million people. it's had a tremendous amount of influence in lebanon, afghanistan and iraq and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, they claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least from our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sa

an uptick of al qaeda activity in that area. also in iraq for that matter. particularly in the benghazi area, which hasn't fully yet come under control of the central libyan government. libyan government leaders were very, very quick to condemn what happened, the killing, the death of ambassador stevens, and the other three american diplomats. called it cowardly and criminal, and said that they would be hunted down. as you know, the united states has said, president, secretary of state, that these killers will be brought to justice. very important to know that this is not a sort of anti-americanism all over libya that's at work. it's a small group of militants and extremists. the same thing happened apparently in egypt. >> explain to us because this was a big question that we had earlier this morning before learning the new information about the ambassador ms group. perhaps not targeting him, but explain what was that about, the protests, the outrage in libya and egypt against this film, this american film that was critical of the prophet muhammad? >> well, suzanne, you know, the problem is
